Say NO to marine parks!

Say NO to zoos Say NO to circuses YOU have the power to make a difference by boycotting!

We now understand, without question that large marine mammals do NOT belong in small Aquariums or private ‘shows’.

Please - lets end this, lets be the better animal : we are the ones with the power to set the others free.

Zoos are very important for conservation and protection of species, along with allowing vital studies to be carried out.
Zoos are important, don’t hate zoos, hate seaworld.

Yeah about Seaworld?

They actually make you sign a contract when you start to work for them saying you’re not allowed to talk about how the animals are treated until you quit.
This needs to be against the law.

Breaking Cat News [georgiadunn]

did you mean…every day in my house?

Accurate. Happens every time I take a bath. If I leave the door unlocked, then they get curious enough to walk along the edges of the tub. Someone will fall in, panic (OMFGthisstuffisWET!!!), and scratch the hell out me leaping out (and spill my glass of wine that’s sitting on the floor, if it’s been that kind of a day). So mostly I take showers. I should replace the shower curtain though, since Someone (someone with fur) has been using it as a climbing wall.

"In the books – and I make no promises, because I have two more books to write, and I may have more surprises to reveal – the conclusion that the careful reader draws is that Joffrey was killed by the Queen of Thorns, using poison from Sansa’s hairnet…" GRRM

 Does this mean maybe Olenna wasn’t the one to do it???

‘Game of Thrones’ Rape Controversy: George R.R. Martin Responds to Jaime-Cersei Scene
Speaking from his personal website, George R.R. Martin weighed in that some of the HBO series’ changes to Jaime Lannister’s return altered the context of the scene, though he always intended the subject matter to disturb, with or without consent:

I think the “butterfly effect” that I have spoken of so often was at work here. In the novels, Jaime is not present at Joffrey’s death, and indeed, Cersei has been fearful that he is dead himself, that she has lost both the son and the father/ lover/ brother. And then suddenly Jaime is there before her. Maimed and changed, but Jaime nonetheless. Though the time and place is wildly inappropriate and Cersei is fearful of discovery, she is as hungry for him as he is for her.
The whole dynamic is different in the show, where Jaime has been back for weeks at the least, maybe longer, and he and Cersei have been in each other’s company on numerous occasions, often quarreling. The setting is the same, but neither character is in the same place as in the books, which may be why Dan & David played the sept out differently. But that’s just my surmise; we never discussed this scene, to the best of my recollection.
Also, I was writing the scene from Jaime’s POV, so the reader is inside his head, hearing his thoughts. On the TV show, the camera is necessarily external. You don’t know what anyone is thinking or feeling, just what they are saying and doing.
If the show had retained some of Cersei’s dialogue from the books, it might have left a somewhat different impression — but that dialogue was very much shaped by the circumstances of the books, delivered by a woman who is seeing her lover again for the first time after a long while apart during which she feared he was dead. I am not sure it would have worked with the new timeline.
That’s really all I can say on this issue. The scene was always intended to be disturbing… but I do regret if it has disturbed people for the wrong reasons.

I swear it didn’t read the way it ended up on screen.

I’m gutted about the way they did it, I was watching it with a friend who hasn’t read the books and I had to assure her that is totally wrong!

This is meant to be the time when Jamie repairs his honor raping his sister really wouldn’t be a good start now would it! I don’t mind the show messing with the order of things but wrecking a whole story arch for reasons unknown (bit late to garner viewer sympathy for Cersie) really pissed me off!!

Can’t wait to get using my Independent Liverpool card! Love to see the fantastic new businesses opening up all the place and this seems like a great way to support all these young upstarts! (The discounts don’t hurt either!)
